Google just announced a new feature that will make watching YouTube videos a little better for Chromecast users. You can now queue up videos to play as you watch.

In an announcement on Google+, YouTube says:

Are you casting from www.YouTube.com to your TV and lost in a sea of browser tabs? Good news, matey. Now you can keep playing a video as you browse and queue the next ones to play - all in one tab. Also, within the next few days you’ll see a new look for the watch page on www.YouTube.com that lets you more easily create playlists and share videos across social media, as well as puts the whole video description in one spot.

If you were using the YouTube mobile app, you could already browse and queue up videos while playing another video, but it's nice to see Google make the experience better for desktop users.

Last month, Google launched the ability for Android users to mirror their screens to the TV using the Chromecast, though the functionality was only made available for certain devices.
